Food was really good but took about an hour. They said they were slammed but the place was over half empty. Needs a good manager. Not the place you want to be at for a quick breakfast.

The restaurant is a great find in the outskirts of West Yellowstone. We were particularly happy to find it, as we were glampingon in the connected Yellowstone under canvas. We had breakfast and dinner twice, and all meals were very good. Our waitress, originally from New York, provided excellent service.

The food was forgettable. The Maragitas were small and the service struggled to get to us. They were out of their Specials so we ordered apps since we weren't too hungry. The soup was good but small portioned. They had a captive audience in the campers at Yellowstone Under Canvas and they took advantage of it.

My daughter and I stopped in here for breakfast one morning. We both loved the food and the Western feel of the restaurant itself. From the restaurant, you see mountains, horses, cows, and Yellowstone Under Canvas (glamour camping.

Thank you for taking the time to post a review on Trip Advisor. I am happy to hear you enjoyed your breakfast as much as the scenery. The ranch can make for a great getaway and a relaxing meal over some fun family bonding. We look forward to seeing you and your daughter again in the future. More

We were looking forward to a great dinner at this restaurant but must say that we were disappointed in the food quality. Once you get to the restaurant after traveling a long bumpy dirt road you are greeted by very friendly staff and a rustic venue. We both had the beef stroganoff which was recommended and advertised as being cooked... More

The food was good (not great), the service was good (not great) and the atmosphere was good as well, yet all the way around I felt like something was lacking, almost like they hadn't taken adequate advantage of what they had. The restaurant was huge, with a smattering of tables spread out all over the place, and they didn't give... More

I have visited this restaurant in each of the last ten years except for the one where they closed to the public (just servicing their lodge guests) and I have always come away with a good experience. The setting is beautiful, the decor and ambience were exceptional and the food was probably the best within a thirty mile radius --... More

In a big city, this would be a 4...but in West Yellowstone it is a 5. The other restaurants we visited were 3's. This costs a bit more, and is 5 miles out of town, but is absolutely worth it. Our server was Dasha, and she was attentive, friendly, prompt, and cruised by our table often and unobtrusively to see... More

Fun interior. Walkable from Yellowstone Under Canvas. Not diner food but more than a chain restaurant sit down type of restaurant. Probably because of its remoteness, it is a bit more pricey than I think I would normally pay the quality. However, very convenient if you are staying close by.

Views are what you want for a vacation dinner. Mountains everywhere. Food! Had filet Mignon done exactly as ordered. Sides excellent. Took a gamble that if meal was excellent desert would be too. Cremate brûlée pudding did not disappoint. Server Jamie did a great job. Thanks for a great meal.
